■'TlietarilVis a tax.'1 Ye?, tarlfF for reven uc 8 a ta.v. Fice tracle and direct taxatlon. Thal'a tlie democratie doctrine. Gen. Gircl()i), recently re-clected to the U. S.Seoate from Georgia, is tlie mm who proclaimed that tlie s-uith slmuld boycott tlie norlh. Mr. Mills, of Texas, or Mr. Cleveland, of New York, were never liung ín cllijry in Enroje, where tliey? That the bowl about advanced prlces was nierely a campaign doJge is clear iioiv when we notlce how democratie papers have fliut up. Tlie handwritlng is on the wall, jnst the same, Mr. Argus, Mr. Cleveland wlll never again bc president of the United Sute?. The stuffed prophet who repeats the sentance "a tarlfl is a tax." The X. Y. World admita that the new tarilF bill wlll not raise the price of Clothlng, because we make our own woolens iu this country. Why was it not honest before eloction in saying so? Tlie farmers of this county who vote for democratie free trade ought to forin a society and petition congress to allow the products of the farms in Canada to come into tliis state free ot duty in competition witli their own products. It ij quite natural that the non-producer should bea free trader. He wants things cheap- all but salaries- but how a laboring man or a farmer can by any possibility becomc antagonistic to his own interests is amystery. Second district candidates for tho Sjlt Kivor trip, should not fall to secure au "Allen llue" steamer.- Adrlau Presa. And Editor Stearns can give them yaluable pointers, for he has taken a trip on tbnt line blmself. He knows all about it. Free wool ! free wbeal ! free barley ! freo live stock ! free eggs! free everything that the farmer produces is the democratie doctrime of free trade. Farmers are expected to vote for a pol ky that will impoverish themselves. The census gives Michigan 2,089,793 people, divided intocongressional districts as follows: First, 250,839; second, 153,503; third, 170,854; tourth, 157,152; fii'th, 210,908; sixth, 104,949; Beven th, 173,904; eighth, 203,782; nintli, 204,014; Unth, 180,917: eleventh, 207,15:5. Since election the Detroit Free Press protests against the rascally methods of Chris. Jicgb. Before election, when that man was a candidate for re-elcction, was the time the F. P. should have protested. It knew then that Jaco!) was under indictment for dauining villanies. How miifili does the "Independent" Chelsea Standard cost you, Mr. Allen? - YpsilnnU Sentlnel. It costs him just SI per year In advanee- not a cent more or a cent lesa !- Standard. It might be of interest to know what Gorman paid for the extra Sentí neis and Kegisters sent to the people of this district, Hillsdale Leader: "The demócrata didn't poll as many votes in this cminty this year as they i)id iu 1SS3. Where does their victory come in ? Simply by about 8ixteen hundred republicans staying at home. The same thlng is trui', only in a less degree iu Lenawee county, Several years ago, when the republi can party proposeJ the resumption of specie payment?, thedimocratsopposed it bitterly. Uut specie payment was resumed and tlie democratie party came to acknowledge tlie wisdom of tlie act. Tlie democratie party will yet acknowledge the wisdom of the policy of protection, for it is just and right. A few days ago Chaplain McCabe sent the followlng note to Kobt. Q. Ingersoll: "Dear Col. - Ten yenrs ago you made the followini; predlction: 'Ten 3'ears from this time two theaters will be built for one church.' The time is up. The Methodits are now building four cliurehes everj' - oneevery six hours. Please venture upon another prediction for the year 1000."

'J'iiu i-M-x is, Allen ran ahead of ever; man on the BtHte ticket iu Uülndale, Monroe and Washtenaw, and in neaily every case wa9 ahead of the ootinty eandidates.
